Renault Trucks has begun accepting pre-orders for the Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C, which are dedicated to regional transportation and urban construction, respectively. These new 44-tonne electric trucks will be built at the manufacturer’s Bourg-en-Bresse facility.

Renault Trucks’ E-Tech T and C models are now available for pre-order, says the company. The Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C will be manufactured in Bourg-en-Bresse, France, beginning in late 2023.

Depending on requirements the vehicles can be ordered with two or three electric motors providing a combined power of up to 490 kW.

Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C can be equipped with four to six lithium-ion battery packs with power outputs ranging from 390 to 540 kWh, providing a diverse range of traction batteries. The batteries may be fully recharged by an AC power of up to 43 kW or a DC power of up to 250 kW. These trucks will be able to go up to 300 kilometres on a single charge and 500 kilometres on a one-hour intermediate fast charge (250 kW). Samsung SDI will supply the battery cells and modules, which will be manufactured in Ghent, Belgium

The Renault Trucks E-Tech T and C are available with three different types of power take-off (PTO): electric, electromechanical, or on the gearbox.
